The victims were on the Delhi-Panipat highway in a Swift Dzire auto which police believe was being driven at high speed in a drastically reduced visibility due to fog. The auto was moving at a high speed and the accident took place after the driver lost control of the vehicle.

Yadav and the other injured weight-lifter were rushed to the Max Hospital in New Delhi's Shalimar Bagh for treatment.

The police said that the other deceased have been identified as Tikamchand alias Tinka (27), Yogesh (24), Saurabh (18), Harish Roy (20).

Yadav, who was admitted in "extremely critical" condition at the AIIMS Trauma Centre, succumbed on Sunday evening. Some bottles were also found in the vehicle indicating the possibility of drunk driving.

Doctor said that he died at 6:38 pm of a cardiac arrest.

They were travelling from Panipat towards Delhi.

"The impact of crash was so severe that the auto rolled over several times with its roof getting completely blown off, before hitting a pole and killing four of them on the spot".
